to say yes. i think 2013 is the year where obama feels strong enough and has learned enough lessons and the country understands what is at stake very fundamentally and the economics are starting to get better. manufacturing is coming back. it's actually coming back from offshore to onshore. we recognize how critical infrastructure is in the wake of sandy and other things. i actually think the ingredients are there. i don't think there is one blinding moment where everybody sort of gets religion and says we're going to do it, but we're on our way back. >> positive signs. economic growth will probably pick up and a good chance we'll get comprehensive immigration reform in 2013, which would be good for any number of reasons. corporate tax reform. there seems to be bipartisan support for that. we'll resolve, if you will, the fiscal challenges of the year? no. we'll kick cans down the road. use whatever cliche you want. a bit of momentum, finally, in the right direction. >> economic momentum in the u.s. that will reduce some of the political pressure. the u.s. isn't europe and a deal isn
